If you’re looking for ideas DIY Father’s Day gifts, you’ve come to the right place. Most of these are fairly simple and some that your kids can help make.

I’ve made several DIY gifts for my husband for various occasions (that he actually likes!), so I thought I’d to a round up of them for you. Click on the pink links or the photos to be taken to the original posts and instructions.

I Love Daddy Shadow Photo – just find some sun and some cooperative kids. This is one of my husband’s favorites It currently sits framed on our dresser.

D-A-D Father’s Day Photo Gift – this works great with multiple kids too. Look how little Carter looks here! Todd still has this one hanging in his office.

Shadow Box Framed Instagram Photos – You don’t have to use Instagram photos, but I love the square look of the prints. Most photo places can 3×3 or 4×4’s for you. I have this in my office at work.

Frame His Favorite T-Shirts – Make his favorite old concert, race, team or other t-shirts into a keepsake for an office or man cave.


Beer Coaster Shadow Box – I made both one for Beer Coasters and for Wine Corks and have them hanging together in our kitchen. It’s a great way to remember special trips or your favorite nights out (or in).

Dry Erase Daily Love Message Frame – take turns with the kids writing daily appreciation notes to dad.

Leather Monogram Cord Keeper – help him keep his charger cord or earphones organized.


Special Dates Penny Keychain – commemorate your kids birth years, anniversary years or other special dates with this personalized keychain.

Etched Glasses – create custom glasses with etching cream and Dad’s favorite type of glasses.

Wooden Yard Dice – I just made these the other day and we’ve only had a chance to use them a few times, but they are perfect for a backyard BBQ!

Stenciled Garden Rocks – showcase his favorite team, your family initials, or other favorite symbols.

Map Covered Monogram – use a map from a place special to your family to create a custom monogram.

Paracord Survival Bracelet – Your guy will look great sporting his team’s favorite colors. Pre-teen or teens will love making these bracelets.

Monogram Succulent Garden – a succulent garden makes a great addition to dad’s desk.


I’m still trying to decide what to get Todd for Father’s Day. Not sure if it will be a DIY or Buy kind of year. My dad is usually a lot easier – a round of golf or some new craft beer usually does the trick.
